Disney Gingerbread Cookies (modified)

After experiencing the Gingerbread cookies at Disneyland I started a quest to come up with a gingerbread cookie that was almost as good. The following is a combination of multiple Disneyland recipes I found online and a few rounds of trial and error to tweak the final recipe.


Gingerbread Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup “fancy” dark molasses *make sure it doesn’t say cooking, blackstrap, unsulphured, or lite
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. ground cloves
  • 3 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 3 tsp. ground ginger
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 cup of water 

Gingerbread Instructions:

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar.
  • Add dark molasses and mix until completely blended.
  • Mix in the egg
  • Sift the dry ingredients together and add to butter mixture, 1/3 at a time.
  • Blend well.
  • Add water until dough comes together.
  • Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator at least 1 hour, or up to a few days.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
  • Use a floured rolling pin to roll out dough on a floured surface, about 1/8th inch thick. (Don’t be afraid to use plenty of flour.)
  • Cut into desired shapes.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
    Optional: Decorate with Royal Icing or a light glaze when completely cooled.
